After a well-deserved summer, college lacrosse teams have reconvened to start the academic year. Every team has some new faces in brand new places, while a couple of teams begin to adjust to Division I life. Most programs will play against other teams or against their alumni during the fall, but those games won’t count toward their record. It’s a way to get better at lacrosse as well as getting to know personnel and new styles of play.
Welcome to fall ball.

The allowance for free movement by players on a whistle or stoppage of play has been approved for the US Lacrosse Girls’ Youth Rules, beginning in 2020, consistent with the change that was approved earlier for the high school girls’ lacrosse rules in 2020.
The Detroit Lions have signed former professional lacrosse player Tom Kennedy to their 53-man roster in time for Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Kennedy is a wide receiver who has been with the Lions since the summer. At 5-foot-10, he’s lined up mostly in the slot, and also drawn practice time as a backup return man. With his speed -- which is serious -- he’s lined up all over the place on special teams.
Tom even saw a little action yesterday.

When Courtney Deacon of Brick graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology in 2010, she joined a small research team of alumni and professors who traveled to India to research a type of wool fabric manufactured in the country. The trip was supposed to last a month. But at age 23, she made what some — including her parents at the time — would consider an unthinkable decision.
